Pattaya police arrested an alleged Kanchanaburi drug dealer with 40,000 methamphetamine tablets.
Piya Sangkhla, 36, was captured April 26 in his Toyota pickup truck with two mobile phones.
Police said Piya confessed to trying to sell the ya ba tablets. He said his employer paid him 60,000 baht to take the drugs from Kanchanaburi to Pattaya to drop off to other dealers. He told police he was dealing drugs because he was in debt over illegal football gambling.
Piya Sangkhla has been arrested for trafficking drugs.
